Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy is a dungeon crawler has you take the role of students at a special military academy. After assembling your party of cadets, you descend into a quasi-cyberpunk labyrinth and fight monsters, known as Variants, while managing your party's resources and growing stronger. The game has an anime art style and uses tropes that'll be familiar to anyone who enjoys Japanese games or media.
New School Aesthetics, Old School Gameplay, Middle School Story
Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy has a somewhat striking colour palette: the dungeons glow in cyberpunk greens and blues, and there are several character portraits you can pick, all with their own highly-stylistic colour choices. The game's art is almost deceptive, however, as the game plays like a classic dungeon crawler: some classes are better than others, and some get better or worse as the game goes on. Like in Dungeons & Dragons, you have a certain number of spells of each level, and can cast spells of that level a certain number of times, forcing you to conserve your spells carefully. Both sides of the game are juxtaposed by a story that is weak and poorly translated.
Don't Cut Your Teeth
But of course, the most important part is the dungeon crawling gameplay. If you can look past the threadbare story and tolerate or enjoy he game's anime appearance, Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy is a good game for you.
